Spinach Mushroom Breakfast Scramble

Spinach Mushroom Breakfast Scramble ~Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #healthy #delicious #breakfast #recipe

I am a huge fan of omelets and frittatas, but they take time and effort … and usually they contain lots of eggs and a lesser amount of toppings. And personally, I want more of the good stuff and less of the boring stuff. Not saying eggs are boring … because I really love eggs, […]

with goat cheese crumbles, sweet roasted almond slices (not pictured), dandelion petals (optional) and a lovely honey lemon ginger dressing I’m a purple lover. Everything purple appeals to me.

Spinach Cornbread Stuffing

People always ask me what we eat for Christmas dinner … it usually involves ham or turkey … or sometimes, if we’re lucky, a Christmas goose.

Indian Creamed Spinach w Cheese (Saag Paneer) ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Indian #spinach #recipe

Adapted/lightened from Food Network I have to teach an Indian cooking class … which made me realize I’ve been slacking on Indian recipes on my blog. I’ve got lots of curries, yes, but not so many other Indian recipes. Perhaps many Indian recipes ARE indeed curry recipes, but I think I tend towards the Thai […]

Spinach Ricotta Stuffed Sweet Peppers

Spinach Ricotta Stuffed Peppers ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #cheese #stuffed #peppers #recipe

It’s been quite a while since I made those amazing Basil Goat Cheese Stuffed peppers. Those were sooo amazing, I kind of just stopped trying to top that recipe.

Spinach Quinoa Stuffed Mushrooms

Spinach Quinoa Stuffed Mushrooms ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #stuffed #mushrooms #recipe

Inspired by Lauren Kelly Nutrition Mushrooms and I are hanging out a lot together lately.

However, since I started trying to lose weight, I […]

Adapted from Cookie & Kate Yesterday morning I went swimming–it’s my new workout thing (alongside yoga–my other workout fave).
